Opening Brisbane to locals and visitors alike requires special people as guides. As an historian, social geographer, public speaker, performer or public artist or researcher, we know you have a passion for our beautiful city. If you are considering becoming a guide, willing to skilling up on keeping your group happy and safe, wanting to share some key insights with our guests, we are interested in you.

Tour Guides for Brisbane Open

Brisbane Open is all about giving Brisbane locals and visitors alike a deeper, richer encounter with our city. Locals love to become tourists in their own backyards, learning things they didn’t know before about their home. The perspective you bring as a local guide is both personal and extraordinarily special. You will provide a view into our places and spaces, architecture, history, culture, art and social history as you walk and talk with our guests.

The type of people who book with us are curious about the stories of the key characters, artworks, public buildings, or private residences. They may have never been to Brisbane before, or they may be locals. Your tour may take the group into places that the public does not normally have access too. The experience may be customised for the special group on that day, to find the best café, gallery exhibition or river walk alongside a forgotten piece of Brisbane’s history, so we are looking for a range of guides for our different itineraries.
